Labor Day - Lake Camping

It turns out I didn't manage to miss documenting every single of Grayson's firsts on this blog. We went on his first camping trip this weekend! 

We took Friday off and packed every single nook and cranny of the truck with all the camping things and took off to meet our favorite friends at Collins Lake. Gray napped most of the way and woke up just in time for lunch in the car before we rolled into the campground. We got there early enough escape the group of 70 or so that were camped a few feet away from our original site. Thank you little baby Jesus there were two extra sites and they were able to move us. 

We decided that Collins is not going to be our go-to camp for the annual M/H family trip. Too crowded and way too dirty. So. Much. Dirt. I prefer something with a little bit of ground cover. Grass... pine needles... leaves, you name it. Anything is better than all that dirt. Unless you ask Gray. He was a pretty big fan actually and was absolutely covered in dirt all weekend long. We went through two full packs of baby wipes in two days just trying to keep him sort of clean. 

We did not plan matching swim suits! We are just funny like that. Next summer we will have little baby Griffin with us. We can't wait for Gray's future bestie to join us! 

Gray loved playing with his Fishie! pole with Daddy. 

And he loved playing in the water and swimming. He was laughing so hard watching Ludo run and play on the beach with Uncle Darren.  

Grayson is basically a professional camper now. He's got the whole relaxed, dirty thing down pat. And excuse me ... but where did my baby go? He looks like such a big boy here. 

Two nights of camping was perfect for this first trip. We headed home Sunday morning and spend the rest of the day unpacking and getting clean. I let Gray soak in a big bubble bath to get all the dirt out from underneath his fingernails and we ordered sushi takeout and went to be at 8:30. 

We are so thankful for good friends, and an awesome four day weekend and we're already looking forward to continuing our new tradition with Darren and Jeanette and soon to be baby Griffin!
